THIS a big show with a big voice at its heart. X Factor winner Alexandra Burke captures the audience’s attention with her outstanding vocals in this new adaptation of this nun-on-the-run comedy crime caper, directed and choreographed by Strictly’s Craig Revel Horwood.
Although it gets off to a rather slow start it doesn’t take long for the show to pick up pace, with Burke in the Whoopi Goldberg role of Deloris Van Cartier, a 70s disco diva. After she witnesses a murder, the very ungodly Deloris is placed under protective custody, and hidden in a convent where she tries to blend in with the sisters.
Fans of the 1992 film will rejoice that this show’s script is just as full of razor-sharp one liners, and there’s plenty of slapstick comedy.
It’s all complemented by glitterballs and a fun finale singalong that gets everyone on their feet dancing to the unforgettable Take Me To Heaven. A lively show with a very polished central performance makes this a heavenly night out. See sisteractuktour.co.uk for dates.
